Trigonal Cocoons

archiKID has been launched with the idea of using architecture as plays and hands-on workshops whereby kids and families would practice accurate observation, questioning, experience, and creativity in making. We in archiKID aim to stimulate kids’ and communities’ awareness and sensibility toward building environment. Besides providing different kinds of Archi – Art workshops (which is a combination of architecture and different forms of art), we also work on different social and cultural content which suit more public events and engage more participants from different ages and abilities. In this event, each participant will collaborate in a process of creating a public art by weaving a particular sort of triangular net (with paper straws), which would be an the abstract symbol for a “Cocoon”, a potent symbol that speaks to so many layers (the cocoon is about wanting to feel comforted and safe, it’s about transformation, and knowing that when we put in the work, we will fly again…).

This is an experience relating to space that involves kids and families in a certain activity within a play-based process. Each individual or group could make just one or as many particles (triangles) as they want and by connecting some corners of these parcels to each other’s, a unique self-structured cocoon will be created. This is going to be an interactive public art installation which is focused on public engagement from different age groups (3-99). It’s about the audience determining how they
want to interact while making it.

We like our children to make great wishes and think of their new resolutions in life every day. Each group of our participants in this creation will be encouraged to make
some wishes. They could write them on a surface of a light balloon, and then put the balloons inside this cocoon. To become a butterfly, a caterpillar first digests itself. May
all wishes come true!

His recent nightmares and now a told prophecy of how a young man he wronged in the past will rise up against him has him worried and unstable, jeopardizing everything.
